You can do either... They mostly drink from leafs and vines. So giving the plant and vines a good solid mist so everything is wet will be good. Some chams don't like the water to be on them... some don't mind.

My chams hate it, but sometimes I will mist towards the top of the cage so it "rains" down on them. They don't seem to mind that as much.

mine usually dont mind if the water is warm, if it is room temp i just mist the plants and vines around them.

If I am hand misting I always make sure I spritz the chameleons themselves a couple of pumps just to trigger the drinking response if they are thirsty- most will smack their lips and start to drink when hit directly.

If I am using my misting system (which is always nowadays) I let the chameleons choose to move in and out as they wish. But it's on for at least 20 minutes at a time- plenty of time to attract a thirsty chameleon to come over for a drink if they want it.
